Distance measures and smoothing methodology for imputing features of documents

Feuerverger, Andrey; Tilahun, Gelila; Hall, Peter; Gervers, Michael

Description

We suggest a new class of metrics for measuring distances between documents, generalizing the well-known resemblance distance. We then show how to combine distance measures with statistical smoothing to develop techniques for imputing missing features of
